3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating #959 - February 8, 2014, $19.10 for a 6bottle taster of Sherbrooke’s exclusive brews. 9 Pour is pretty standard, hazy golden orange with a bubbly white head. Aroma is orange, lemon citrus sweetness. Mouthfeel is crisp, medium-heavy alcohol character, medium carbonation. Taste is crisp but a bit of a mess for a tripel. Gets a grainy malty note that really overarches the yeast character. Citrus and yeast notes present on the palate as well, but just a little all over the place for me.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 mL bottle from Sherbrooke LC, served cold in a tulip glass. Dirty, cloudy amber with a thin white head. Smells like a Lambic, with pretty decent barnyard and rubber and bitter herbs, a sweetness, lightly woodsy, Orval character...on purpose? Medium plus body with slightly relaxed effervescence. Much less wild than the nose, takes on a supporting role for sherry-oxidation and lots of sweet biscuit and honey, alcohol makes its presence known, quite the interesting series of defects; lightly sweet with minimal bitterness and a sherry-like, lightly boozy finish. WTF? I didn’t mind this, oddly enough.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a mostly clear golden-amber colour with a small white spotty cover and a decent ring around the glass leaving very little lace. Aromas are fruity and floral mostly, booze, light spice and yeast. Flavours of a lot of booze up front, spice, fruit, somewhat sweet, yeast. Alcohol is hot which is unacceptable here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white ring. Aroma is light bready malts and a dry yeast. Taste is dry yeast with bready malts. Mouthfeel is thin and not a carbonated or as "full" as I’d expect from a tripel.
